Employees in Greece's private sector are typically young - aged up to 49 years - and on low salaries, statistics on worker data submitted to the Single Social Security Entity (EFKA) by employers have shown, with the average salary from the year starting in August 2015 dropping 2.07 percent across the sector.
''The salaries of the Bulgarian Teachers will increase with 15% this fall'', said the Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov, according to bTV.
September's growth will be the same for all, as there is no mechanism yet to be linked to the results of their work.
However, the next increases will be given after well done job.
EUR 516 is the average monthly salary for the first quarter of the year - National Statistical data show.
This means there is a 1.6% increase compared to the last three months of 2016.
The highest salaries are in the IT sector, where the average monthly pay is over EUR 1,000. The lowest salaries are in the hotel and restaurant business and in the administration.
"The differences between West and East Europe are huge. I will give you only one example - the minimal salary in Bulgaria is lower than the child benefits in Denmark.
The European Union is not able to achieve the will, so as to overcome the national differences and to use power. The current EU condition could be compared to one small hangover."
Thanks to good fiscal results, salaries and pensions will be increased by the end of the year.
The minimum labor cost to be raised as well, Labor Minister Aleksandar Vulin told RTS on Tuesday.
MPs will not be freezing their salaries. This was made clear after the vote on the new rules of procedure of the National Assembly, endorsed after a final vote in parliament today, BNR reported.
The Bulgarian Socialist Party proposal that the MPs' basic salary remain unaltered at the December 2016 level throughout the entire term of the 44th National Assembly, was rejected.
